Canadian Brides!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Thank you ladies for the words of encouragement, you have no idea how much it is appreciated! I am not going to let it bring me down any longer, the show must go on as they say. However, I do have a favor/question to ask ... I have ordered some fancy program paper, that I wanted to give guests at the ceremony however does anyone have suggestions as to what I should write on them... because since there is no mother or father of the bride, and no mother father of the groom.. it's kinda going to look funny and I have no clue what to print out on them other than both of our names and the date?? I've tried to look up ideas... but most of them just repeat themselves.. does anyone have any suggestions for me ... this would really help me out .. i've been stressing over this since I got the darn program paper. Thanks in advance for any ideas or tips!

 

Janet, love love love your pictures, especially the one of you on the bed smiling and looking away .. it's so natural and beautiful.. your fiancé will love it! What great decor you had access too .. great job!

 

Also that cocktail dress is amazing where did you purchase it for such a good price???

What about doing a nice poem or something like that as your program! Instead of doing traditional programs we are just going to do small tags on our fans and likely use the starfish story.  Have you heard it?

 

http://www.starrbrite.com/starfish.html  here's a link if you haven't read it before.  Another bride shared it on a different thread and I really liked it since we have incorporated the starfish into so many elements of the wedding.  Another option would be the footprints in the sand poem, it is definitely more religious so if that is not you this may not work but I really like the idea of the poem and feel it could be geared to a husband and wife even.  http://www.footprints-inthe-sand.com/index.php?page=Poem/Poem.php

 

If you don't like the idea of a poem or story why not just have your monogram or names at the top.  Your bridal party (if you have one) and an outline of the ceremony (is this is what you are going with) and then a really nice thank you note to your guests.  How many people do you have attending?  If it is a smaller group it may be nice on the back of the programs to do a "special thank you to all the wonderful people who have travelled to be with us on our special day" and then list everyones names.  It is a special shout out to all your guests and would be nice for them to read as they are waiting for everything to start!

 

Just a few ideas!!!

Thanks Mich...the studio where i had the pics done is awesome. So many set ups and props...it was fun!

 

Do you have any special things happening at your ceremony...like sand ceremony, shell ceremony, special readings? You could put little paragraphs to explain each one. You could incude a poem, thank you notes....have a look a few pages back, i shared a bunch of pics of my programs and i included all kinds of stuff :) you can PM me for ideas or wording....i'd be glad to help :)
